Hello world!

Hi folks. We’ve talked about having a WordCamp Organizer’s Handbook for a while now, and finally we’ve got this site up and running. We will be adding more content to the pages as we hear from past and current organizers about what information they wish they’d had in advance, and will clarify anything included in these pages that is unclear. We’ll also be adding a forum to the site to allow past, current, and future organizers to discuss things that have worked for them and give each other advice. The forum will run on the new bbPress plugin, so that will be pretty exciting.

If you see any big gaps in information here, please let us know. It’s possible that we’re already working on a new page to cover it, but it might be something under our radar, so your feedback is greatly encouraged. Leave a comment on this post, or use on the most relevant page. You can also reach us at support@wordcamp.org.

This blog will announce when we’ve added new information to the site, when there’s news that will affect all WordCamps, if there’s a business interested in supporting upcoming WordCamps, and other items of general interest to organizers. We’ll also use this blog for updates about the WordCamp.org platform, as we continue to build on it and make it even easier for you to manage your WordCamp site.

So, welcome to the site, and we hope it helps!
